9780996033206: Love Letters 1909:: A Long Distance Romance Through the Mail

Hidden in a Trunk for Over a Century Estella is a modern girl who enjoys her job as a candy maker for the Kellogg’s company and has a lively social life, but she still spends the occasional evening alone with her black cat. Most of her friends are already married, but Estella is holding out for the right man. When she mails a postcard to an old friend, she hopes for a quick reply. She never dreams it will reach a stranger with the same name. Edwin is a machinist who has little time to look for a wife. He’s been taking care of his mother and sisters since the death of his father, he spends his evenings writing marches and practicing maneuvers with the Michigan National Guard. He is one of best marksmen in the state—a fact his mother finds ironic since he can’t kill a chicken for dinner. When a postcard arrives addressed to a Mr. Edwin Ellis, he realizes it was intended for someone else, but he can’t resist the opportunity to answer it. Edwin and Estella’s letters give us a delicious slice of Americana. The horse and buggy of their childhood will soon be replaced by driving machines. Kodak is providing a new way to preserve memories. Edwin now carries his own camera with him everywhere he goes. Ragtime Bands are the pop music of the day. Edwin writes marches and plays in his own militia marching band. Even the breakfast table looks different. The Kellogg brothers have discovered a way to make a flaked cereal to save housewives time making breakfast. Was it a twist of fate, or Providence that sent this letter to the wrong address? Will Edwin reveal the truth, or keep the conversation going? Will Estella think his practical joke is funny? Edwin’s band is playing a love song while the train carries his response from Grand Rapids to Battle Creek. Estella’s heart is beating to its own rhythm as she reaches for the letter because she thinks she recognizes the handwriting. What you are about to read is not fiction, but a real life conversation. This slice of Americana will whisk you away to 1909--a simpler time where the mail takes days and people have time to care about their neighbors. It’s a world where getting the wrong piece of mail might just change your life. Go ahead, take peek at their letters. Edwin and Estella will charm each other and win your heart as well. Indianapolis Motor Speedway 1909 Among the treasures in this little book, Edwin gives a detailed eye witness account of the opening of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
